This years competition will be held on 2nd August and judging will take place at 2pm. Agreed prize money of £25 for 1st place, £15 for 2nd and £10 for 3rd place.
We would encourage residents to take part. Judging will take place from the roadside, the judging criteria will include:
❖ Visibility. The garden should be visible to the public and make a positive contribution to the street scene. Account will be taken of the degree of pleasure given by the garden to the wider community.
❖ Design. Includes how creatively the available space has been used and the combination of plant form, texture and colour. Displays will be assessed to see if the layout and plants chosen are sufficiently varied to offer interest and colour throughout the year. Account will be taken of the effort and imagination used to overcome site constraints and obstacles.
❖ Maintenance Standards. Looks for overall impact, standards of grassed areas, edging, dead heading etc.
